Sherborne Sensors Aerospace Solution for Unique Challenges with the WTS Wireless Sensor

September 2020 MARIETTA, GA ~ Equipment manufacturers required to measure the angle of an aircraft body in x and Y direction when lifting the body off the ground previously used a wired dual axis inclinometer connected with a cable to the control unit.

Sherborne Sensors offers two WTS Series wireless sensors whose aerospace applications include pre-flight calibration, floating pontoons, and tarmac level measurement. The WTS Wireless Tilt System is a flexible, all-weather radio telemetry system designed to provide high accuracy remote angle measurement data. The WTS gives structural engineers the ability to record and log data remotely without the cost and inefficiency of traditional wired methods.
